Other comments were “Keep up the good work” (more than once) and one respondent felt that activities still have a bias towards Copenhagen.

Director Per Spindler states: “We are pleased that people in the Biopeople community took the time to answer this survey which gives us valuable feedback on our activities and helps us prioritise future activities. When it comes to covering the life science area outside the Greater Copenhagen Area, I am happy to be able to announce that Biopeople in the near future will expand with employees at Aarhus University and Aalborg University Hospital, giving us more national outreach, and providing companies and educational institutions based in the west of Denmark better access to Biopeople's services. Plus, we are always open to consider new suggestions and possible collaborations to the benefit of our network members.”
